P1: Climb the chimney about 10 ft to the blocky overhang (crux). Continue upwards to a large ledge. Belay here, or climb the short corner to the alcove formed by massive blocks wedged into the chimney above. Belay on gear or sling the tree. 60 ft.

P2: From the alcove, traverse left around the massive blocks above, then scramble into the chimney again. Stem deep into the chimney at its pinch point (crux), then up the steep face, trending out of the chimney to exit onto the GT Ledge. Belay on gear or sling a tree. 80 ft.

P3: Scramble to the top.


Start inside the chimney immediately left of the Obstacle Delusion face and the Insuhlation flake.


Standard Gunks rack.

The top of P2 is a great vantage point from which to watch the drama unfold on High Exposure.

On P1, the face to the right of the chimney is tempting, but it's another route. Follow the chimney.
